Description

Starting on obvious underclings at chest height, make a big left move to an obvious "shotput" pinch. Then roll right delicately on crystal crimps to slopey notch arete and up.

A bomber foot block immediately above start broke recently. Now it is harder for the grade and potentially height-dependent but very do-able.

Location

This is right off the trail, above Ode to Failure and The Syringe, downhill from Childbirth. It is easily identifiable by large pine growing out of base of boulder.

Protection

One or two pads is plenty. Decent spotter is helpful to keep climber on the trail should they try to go dynamic and miss.

Climbed this route today after a hold apparently broke. It's called V9 in the guidebook, and that seems about right with the foothold gone. Due to my 6'4" wing span and being able to mainly skip the crux, it's hard to give in a grade. Seemed V9+/V10-. Cool route either way! Jan 25, 2015
